    Words Their Way- After break we will be replacing words their way with a new phonics program called fundations.  Most students had this in kindergarten and therefore will be familiar with the program.
    Writer's Workshop- Students will begin writing all about books.  They will be picking topics that they know a lot about to create an informational story.

    Reading Workshop Skill-  Students are being word detectives and learning how to figure out tricky words while reading on their own or with a partner.

    Grammar- Reviewing rhyming words,nouns, parts of a sentence, and will be introduced to verbs or action words.

    Math- Topic 5-working with addition and subtraction equations
    Science or Social Studies (changes according to unit being covered)

    S.S:  Studenst will be learning all about traditions and culture around the world.

    Thank you and have a great week!
    Mrs. Barry
